Elderly Woman Drives Through Crowded Concert
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Several people were injured in an
auto crash after a 74-year-old woman drove through a crowded dance floor at an outdoor
concert in Ohio on Sunday night. The elderly woman told police she mistook
the gas pedal for the brake and drove into a crowd of people. Eight people
were injured, and two remain in serious condition, according to the Parma
Heights police. The injured individuals include a woman who suffered a
spinal fracture and a brain injury and another woman who suffered compound
fractures. The driver was also treated for minor injuries. According to
reports, all victims were in their 60s or 70s.
The auto accident occurred around seven p.m. at a Frank & Dean community
concert featuring music from the Rat Pack. The dance floor set up in the
parking lot of a Parma Heights' park, in a suburb west of Cleveland.
The elderly woman was leaving the concert and trying to pull out quickly
so someone else could park in her spot. The accident is being investigated
by the Parma Heights police. According to officials, the woman may be
facing charges of vehicular assault.
